why do you have a problem with that? it is only March and the Obamas have gone on three vacation already. but Americans, especially those far worse off than they were in 2008, don't seem to mind. it was about this time last year when Michelle made an "I feel your pain" campaign speech, about 5 minutes after an expensive ski vacation in Vail. instead of "how are you?" the new everyday expression will soon be, "who'd ya vote for?"We can see Obama is a strong supporter of Anti-Work ‘More than a Vacation a Month for Obamas in 2013’ still No Budget!!
'Bam cutback$ are tour de farce
Vice President Joe Biden’s entourage racked up nearly $1 million in hotel bills in Europe last month, and a new report says a night in Paris added limo costs of $321,000. The Obamas went on three vacations this year, and the first daughters are in the Bahamas.
Meanwhile, the adminis-tration still cries poverty to block public tours of the White House.“Due to staffing reductions resulting from sequestration, we regret to inform you that White House Tours will be canceled effective Saturday, March 9, 2013 until further notice,” its Web site reads.“We very much regret having to take this action.”
Regret? The closure remains what it was from the start — a calculated scheme to inflict pain on the public, including schoolchildren, to pressure Republicans to restore the cuts.
But the hostage strategy hasn’t worked. The sequester cuts are likely to become permanent because the nation supports reductions in federal spending.
But there is a moral to the story — the White House doesn’t have any. Politico says the canceled tours cost the Secret Service $74,000 a week. That’s a pittance compared to the Obama vacations and the Biden European blowout, but in cutting the tours while keeping the perks, Obama reveals what matters most.
Hint: It’s not you, suckers.'
